Gamer holds emotional funeral for 980Ti graphics card in hilarious Reddit video

This video of a gamer holding a “funeral” for his graphics card has had the Reddit community in stitches.

In the clip, the 980 Ti graphics card – which were sold for around £600 back in 2015 – is seen resting in a homemade cardboard coffin.

The coffin features a white satin lining and a carefully-drawn cartoon drawn on the lid shows the graphics card meeting Death.

“Was I a good boy?” The graphics card is shown to ask.

“Yes. I’m told you were the best,” Death replies.

The video then shows the lid of the coffin being closed, with the distraught gamer laying a white rose on the top.

The video has received more than 45,000 upvotes since it was posted earlier today and the Reddit community appears to be amused, but also feel terrible.
